Brest vs Lyon Match Preview & Team News
Brest managed to improve lately and pick up five points from the last three rounds. That unbeatable run saw them remaining on a safe mid-table position. The hosts managed to stay undefeated against Lille on the road in the previous game, and in this one, they will be searching for another surprise. Olivier Dall’Oglio’s side has been pretty good in the front, but they need to tighten up the defense. Jean-Kevin Duverne and the lads conceded 44 times so far, and they are among the leakiest defenses in the league. Brest puts pretty good displays at home, where they booked seven wins on 12 occasions. The hosts need to be disciplined in this game if they want to remain unbeaten.
Lyon lost in the latest round at home against Montpellier, and that defeat saw them slip to 3rd place. However, they are still in the title race, being three points behind the top-placed Lille. That defeat broke Lyon’s five-game winning streak, and Rudi Garcia’s side wants to get back on the winning track. Memphis Depay and the lads are clinical in front of the oppositions’ net, and they netted 51 times so far. On the other hand, their defense conceded 22 goals, which is the third-best result in the competition. Lyon puts excellent performances away from home, losing just once in 12 outings. The visitors missed the chance to win only once in the previous five matches played away from home. They want to get back home with three points to continue the title battle.
